Google Photos Sharing gives mobile app a facelift with changes to tabs, libraries, and more


Google has revamped its Google Photos app for mobile users. The new changes include a redesign of the Library and Sharing tabs, and some shortcuts in the app. Google has refreshed the app’s UI to make it easier for users to sort through photos and videos. Google Photos has done some “spring cleaning” to further organize things.

The app’s refreshed Library tab now allows users to view photos in an organized grid or list layout. Users also have to choose whether they want to filter these images based on their type such as Album, Shared Album, Favorites or On-Device Folder. Additionally, Google Photos is now introducing a new “Import Photos” section in the app, along with locked folders, utilities, archives, and trash. This section will include all imported photos and videos from other services, edited pictures folders, Camera Roll, and more.

As mentioned earlier, the sharing tab of the app has also been “cleaned up” with the redesign. Now you’ll also see new sections like Sharing for Partners, Shared Albums, and Conversations. The update is currently rolling out for Android and will soon be rolled out for iOS users.

Google Photos no longer lets Pixel and other Android users back up their Screenshots folder so that these screenshots don’t appear in Memories. According to company blog“If you choose not to back up your most recent screenshots, we’ll be adding a shortcut soon to find them that will appear at the top of your main photo grid so you can take them correctly.”

Google has added that Android will soon allow users to see a “carousel of contextual suggestions to copy text, crop, search using Google Lens while viewing screenshots”. This will help users to perform tasks quickly.

Google Photos gives the mobile app a makeover by making changes to the post sharing tab, library and more that first appeared on BGR India.
